All-New revelations About Brett FavreBased on interviews with dozens of players and significant team personnel, including owner Woody Johnson, long-time New York Post columnist Steve Serby brings to light juicy new information about Brett Favre's season with the New York Jets. This powerful account reveals:
Behind-the-scenes details of the negotiations, including key correspondence, that brought Favre to the JetsWoody Johnson's thoughts on the ineffable appeal of Namath, Favre, and top draft pick Mark SanchezThat Favre kept trying to convince himself that he had made the right decision to play in New YorkHow Favre tried to fit in, but also resisted team rulesThe pranks Favre would play, even on his coaches How Favre elevated Woody Johnson?s expectations for the team, which ultimately doomed Head Coach Eric ManginiWoody Johnson's admission on why Mangini was firedThe tackle that hurt Favre's arm, as described by the player who made it, and how the team didn?t adjust to his weakening armThat Favre, over the last 4–5 weeks of the season, threw the ball sparingly in practice; instead, he often handed off to rest his arm as Kellen Clemens made most of the throwsHow discarded Jet quarterback Chad Pennington handled his signing with the archrival Miami Dolphins and his final showdown against the man who replaced him with the division title on the line
With scores of black-and-white photos and a color insert, No Substitute For Sundays shows why Favre can?t give up the game or give up on himself.
